The Rotary Club of West Nassau continues to invest in educating people with a recent $1,500 donation to The Bahamas Technical and Vocational Institute (BTVI).

During the presentation held at Poop Deck West, the club’s President, Christopher Dorsette, said they decided to donate to BTVI following an insightful presentation by the institution’s President, Dr. Robert W. Robertson back in January.

Dr. Robertson thanked the club members for the contribution, adding that this has been a record year for scholarship support for BTVI.

“Our scholarship fund has grown by 150% in the last year. Many of our students are needy and the support is very much needed,” said Dr. Robertson. 

Dr. Robertson noted the importance of the institution continuing to work with government and industry stakeholders to address the country’s skills gap.
